I eat chicken, fish and plenty of veggies.

My sister walks 15000 steps a day and has lost 105 pounds at age 63.

I agree with the others, protein is helpful. I will eat very well, staying at the low end of my calories and feel fine one day but the next day, i am starving so i eat more protein and balance it with fruits and veggies, maybe yogurt. I also started planning ahead what i will eat which helps. Hang in there, it will get better emoticon

1000 calorie seams low. Have you looked to see what SP says your range should be? Also if you put you food in the tracker it will tell you if you are getting the nutrition you need. Also your needs are going to change from day to day if your exercise changes. The days I do strength training I get hungry, a high protean snack right after the work out helps a lot. Swimming also makes me very hungry.

What I've noticed when I feel ravenous like that is I am deficit in either protein or fat. I also make sure I've had all my water because the signal for thirst is the same as hunger.

I don't have any advise. but I know how that is. I have had days when at 800-900 I cannot eat any more but a day or two later I end up with 1400 or so. I hope that it just averages out, but I don't know if it works that way.

Since I started SP, I've learned a lot about my eating habits and how unbalanced my eating has been. I tend to eat way too many carbs and not enough protein if I'm not careful. What seems frustrating, though, is how I can be satisfied with 1000 calories one day and still hungry after eating 1600 another day. Any advice?
